Lexar Media has begun sellings its miniSD flash memory cards worldwide, the company announced on Wednesday in Hannover, Germany, at the CeBit trade show. The Fremont, Calif.-based company said the card is immediately available in three capacities--32MB ($29.99), 64MB ($49.99) and 128MB ($79.99). The company has been selling its miniSD line in Japan since December last year.

The miniature version of the Secure Digital format was developed to provide a way to store data in cell phones, handhelds and in a range of shrinking digital devices, such as cameras and music players. Lexar Media joins SanDisk, Panasonic and a growing list of other companies in supporting the new, more portable format. Historically, prices for an emerging format have dropped as it has attracted backers and increased sales.
